Alan "Hotted" Widmann - Team partypoker
Name: Alan Widmann
Nationality: Venezuelan and German
partypoker Screen Name: hotted89
Much like partypoker Player Panel member Betrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Alan "Hotted" Widmann is a former professional gamer who has successfully made the transition into the world of poker.
It’s long been common for gamers to use Twitch, but Alan was one of the first poker pioneers, sharing his MTT journey on the platform. The Venezuelan quickly recognised the overlap in skillset between the two pursuits, most notably the ability to adapt to different situations. He therefore had no problem grasping the fundamentals of the game.
Alan has credited well-respected high-stakes player Viktor ‘Isildur’ Blom with accelerating his poker development. Although, Alan, who was new to the game at the time, had to google who Viktor was initially, the two have since developed a strong friendship. Viktor routinely offers advice to Alan, particularly on how to approach $10K buy-in tournaments.
Alan has amassed a following exceeding 250,000 – join the action on his twitch channel ‘Hotted89‘.
